Help! Intermittent Fevers/Painful Breast
For over a month, I have been fighting with intermittent fevers. The issues started when my son bit me. I had my first BFing problems ever in the form of a clogged duct. Since then, I have only been clogged once, but the pins and needles sensation after every feeding continues. My nipple is wrecked in that the skin keep peeling on it.
Every 2-3 weeks I have been experiencing low-grade temperatures, which never manifested into anything. Now my fever has gone up to 101. I don't have any redness, clogged sensation or anything in my left breast, just a very painful nipple and some pins and needles that are different from the letdown sensation.
I plan to call my doctor tomorrow, but has anyone else experienced this? I'm starting to feel awful, so I'm thinking I'm getting my first case of mastitis.
